Open Air Theatre: Dr Dolittle

Illyria (equity) presents: Dr Dolittle; a funny, much-loved and exciting adventure, with a strong message about responsibility towards animals and the environment.

  • Booking essential

When Doctor John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide. Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help.

Together with a menagerie of animals, he sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.

Pack a picnic to enjoy from 6.30pm before the performance begins at 7.00pm.
